Nationwide alert test messages coming to cellphones on Wednesday

Emergency Alert Test Takes Place Monday

It will be Ontario's turn to conduct a test of Canada's new public emergency alert system. "I'd rather have the problem right now and isolate the issues and fix the code if there's code problems than have to wait", said Sampson. "There is no danger to your health or safety".

"The alerts are actually coming from the emergency management in the region and then it goes to Pelmorex", Valladao said.

In Quebec a typo by programmers prevented success.

Television and radio alerts can be broadcast up to five times per year.

Radio and TV stations ran the tests successfully, according Blanchet.

The test is also a great opportunity for families to have a conversation about what their plan would be in the event of an emergency, said Sampson. "That's why they were running tests - to see if something went wrong".

"What we found over time with the advent of the internet was some people are streaming from the internet or they might have one of their sharing services like Netflix", said Sampson.

Depending on device settings, those with compatible phones connected to an LTE network can expect to hear a tone similar to an ambulance siren or feel a vibration for about eight seconds.

Nefertiti possesses no rooms behind Tut's tomb
With his iconic gold and blue striped death mask, Tutankhamun has become somewhat of a poster boy for all Egyptian Pharaohs. There is huge global interest in Nefertiti, who died in the 14th century BC and is thought to be Tutankhamen's stepmother.

To confirm whether a mobile device is set up to receive Alert Ready messages, mobile subscribers are encouraged to contact their service providers.

Emergency management officials from federal, provincial and territorial governments have long delivered emergency alerts to the public in partnership with Canadian broadcasters, led by The Weather Network owner Pelmorex Corp.

"The CRTC has no insights with respect to what occurred in Hawaii, other than what has been reported in the media", the regulator said.

Unlike wireless emergency alerts issued in the United States, Canada's system requires a specific vibration cadence, alert tone and banner to notify users of an emergency.

In Canada, warnings about emergencies are not text or SMS messages, and distributed using the so-called technology of cell broadcast.

"When the emergency alert comes through your device, be sure you are able to safely read it", Schuler said.

On Monday tests were scheduled for Quebec and Ontario, however the Quebec test failed due to a coding error.
